Forever Broken.

A soul like mine has many reasons to live.

Dark. Alone … Isolated.

Deprived of ever being a child.


Lost. Broken … Worthless.

Made a woman,
Before the choice was mine.

Secluded. Lonely … Detached.

He embezzled the purest part of me,
before I knew what purity meant.

Thick. Hideous … Misplaced.

Feelings a child should never feel daily.

For a child to know their worth,
It must be shown …
It must be taught …
It must be felt!!!


Abandoned. Forlorn … Vacant.

How do you teach a child their worth,
When their worth was abducted at 3, 4, 5,
Six … years of age?!

Being left to feel nothing,
Yet, feeling everything, completely.

Somber. Gloomy … Dejected.

Feelings of discontent meandered for years.

Not knowing why this emptiness was felt.


Invisible. Obscured … Unseen.

Wasn’t this the standard?
Didn’t this “act” go on in everyone’s home?

He told me yes,
But also said to advise no one.

“Shhh,” was whispered in my ear.
“It’s our secret.”

Secret. Classified … Private.

A soul like mine has many reasons to live.
A soul like mine has many reasons to love.
A soul like mine has many reasons to not trust.
A soul like mine has many reasons to hate.
A soul like mine has many reasons to die.

How can someone abduct the innocence of a child?!

Awful. Hideous … Grotesque.
Appalling. Foul … Monstrous.
Repulsive. Broad … Plump.
Horrid. Beastly … Repugnant.

You are what you feel.
I am all the above.

Why wouldn’t I be?!
For the man who was in charge,

Fearful. Scared … Petrified.

I have an extreme love for conveying life in colorful words! Since I can remember, I have loved everything about writing, creating.. Bringing my mind to different places. Better yet ... having someone else's mind go to another place, makes me happiest!! I'm a wife, daughter, and most importantly ... Mom. I live and breathe for my family. I love to write, read, ride my bike, hang at the lake, NYC, being outside, people watching ;) My guilty pleasure is trashy, cheesey romance novels lol All in all, I'm pretty laid back... walking through this thing called life!! 🤗
